MODEL PRISONER

My cage has no walls
no bars.
no windows
no doors.

But it is still a cage.

It is not made of iron
steel
glass
or wood.

But it is still a cage.

It has no visiting hours
no visitors.

But it is still a cage.

It has no bunk
sink
toilet.

But it is still a cage.

There are no guards
cell mates
wardens.

But it is still a cage.

There are no parole boards.

It has no early release for good behavior.

My cage has one captive
prisoner
inmate.

Just one.

Me.

And I am a model prisoner.
